Damon: "Don't listen to him. He walks on a moral plane, 'way' out of our eye line. I say; snatch, eat, erase."
Damon: "And good morning to you, little miss "I'm on a mission."
Elena: "How can you be so arrogant and glib after everything that you've done?"

Vicki: "And how long have you been preparing the "you're not good enough" speech? I'm assuming it predates the whole vampire thing."
Vicki (choking Elena): "Let's get one thing straight you perky little bitch. You had my brother whipped for 15 years, 15 years, and then you dumped him.

And I'm going to see Jeremy whenever I want to see Jeremy cause I have some fun new toys to play with and I won't think twice about ripping your little head off. You got it!"

Vicki: "I'm fine!"
Stefan: "Really? No headache? Your stomach's not screaming at you? You're not feeling light headed or anxious or cranky? Like if someone looks at you the wrong way you could just rip their head off?"
Stefan: "It's called hunger. And it's only going to get worse and worse every minute you pretend it's not controlling you."
Damon (to Mrs. Lockwood): "Let me escort you to the school. It's not safe out there, alone. I mean I've seen ten vampires tonight."
